The Mark Snyder Quartet (Opening band TBA 7:30).

"Playing in nearly every possible type of band from jazz, to rock, R&B, and show music for the past 30 years has given Boston area bass player Mark Snyder a pretty broad spectrum of musical experience to choose from. He draws from all of that with his band The Mark Snyder Quartet, a groovy combo of rocking guitars, drums, sax, and flute that digs deep into old standards, modern jazz classics, and funky originals..." - The Boston Globe

The John Stein International Quintet

"John Stein is one of the finest jazz guitarists you'll ever hear, with beautiful touch, tone, swing, detail, and emotion. He is what you might call deep mainstream, surprising at every turn with familiar material. Working with a clean, undistorted classic jazz-guitar sound, he renders maximum swing and expression. There's a wealth of detail - the dips and turns of phrases, accents falling like words - that he gets at even the fastest tempos."  - Jon Garelick, The Boston Phoenix
 
From the USA: John Stein, guitar; Phil Grenadier, trumpet.
